Milan Men’s Fashion Week came in like a hurricane. This past week we’ve seen everything from green slime falling from the ceiling at Prada to Tommy Cash storming up the runway at JORDANLUCA. But what was the most iconic show from Milan Men’s Fashion Week? You’ll have to decide.
VALENTINO SAID: SCHOOL’S OUT
Valentino kicked off the week with a show that transported us back to school, hosted in the University of Milan itself. Tailoring, florals, and luxury accessories dominated the collection, developing some of the iconic aesthetics previously seen at FW23 whilst also introducing some exciting new looks.
DSQUARED2 GAVE SEXY, SUMMER VIBES
Dsquared2 had us drooling with a show that was as sexy as it was wearable. Julia Fox returned to the runway in a Dsquared2 monogrammed corset dress, and if we don’t manage to get our hands on one of those Choke tees, summer is cancelled.
JORDANLUCA WAS SOMETHING ELSE
In the meantime, Tommy Cash stole the show at JORDANLUCA, which featured a collection littered with chunky spikes, double denim, and wet latex dresses. With an ominous voice giving us advice like “Don’t stab people with old syringes” as guests were welcomed in, the show was set in a red-lit room and accompanied by heavy techno music, which was so JORDANLUCA.
WE ESCAPED TO MESSINA WITH ETRO
Etro showcased some hypnotising prints, jacquards, and patterns, transporting us to the Messina where creative director Marco de Vincenzo is from. Seen in tunic dresses, shirts, and what looked like rugs draped over models arms, the exotic prints were more than enough to convince us to visit Messina, Italy this summer.
44 LABEL GROUP BROKE ONTO THE SCENE
44 Label Group showcased its industrial inspired SS24 collection in a parking lot, featuring oversized sweatshirts, acidic sets, and futuristic sunglasses. The collection’s whole aesthetic was a utilitarian mix between workwear and high-fashion street style; and personally, we were here for it.
PRADA WON WEIRDEST RUNWAY
Prada was iconic as ever, with a futuristic runway that featured broad shoulders, bright colours, and a thick layer of green slime for SS24. Tailoring might’ve been the main character but we were obsessed with Miuccia Prada and Raf Simmons’ eye-catching floral printed shirts.
ALL HANDS ON DECK AT CHARLES JEFFERY LOVERBOY
And finally, we took to the deck for Charles Jeffery LOVERBOY where pirate and sailor hats accessorised an exciting collection littered with feathers, glitter, and vibrant prints: straight out of a child’s dress up closet. There were also some pretty tight shoes, some featuring cat claws and an Umbro collab sneaker.
